Massage Therapy in Mississauga

Massage Therapy is one of the oldest methods of healing, with references in medical texts dating back to 4000 years ago. Massage techniques include movable pressure, kneading, and compression for the benefit of the musculoskeletal, circulatory-lymphatic, nervous, and other systems of the body.

Massage is used for a variety of health-related purposes, including relieving pain, rehabilitating sports injuries, reducing stress, increasing relaxation, addressing anxiety and depression, and aiding general wellness. Medical professionals agree that up to 90% of all diseases and illnesses are caused by stress alone- a simple problem that massage therapy is designed to resolve.

Stress Management Through Massage

The symptoms of stress can be physical or psychological. Stress-related physical illnesses result from long-term overstimulation of a part of the nervous system that regulates the heart rate, blood pressure, and digestive system.

Treating Rheumatoid Arthritis with Massage Therapy

Massage therapy has the ability to significantly affect systemic disorders such as Rheumatoid Arthritis. Massage therapy, when used in conjunction with other prescribed treatments, can have a positive systemic effect in the management of the symptoms and progression of an autoimmune disorder.

Baby Massage

Just as an adult can benefit from positive touch so can infants. For many years, researchers have studied the response babies have to touch or lack of touch. In one of the studies, infants were given three twenty minute massage sessions. Gentle techniques were applied to the head, shoulders, arms and feet. Those babies that were massaged showed greater responsiveness to both tactile and visual stimuli. Gastrointestinal functioning was improved which therefore increased food intake and promoted peristalsis and bowel movement. Babies that get regular massages cry less, stay relaxed for longer periods of time and sleep better. Read more about infant massage.
